The impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the restaurant industry is devastating. We have been faced with the impossible choice of deciding between the responsibility to our community and our employees to prevent the possible spread of this disease, or the responsibility that we have to remain open as long as viably possible to support the people that we employ.

Unfortunately, we no longer feel that it is responsible to expose our team and community to more risk than is necessary. The faster that we can all stay home, take care of ourselves, and get through this, the better.

Our restaurants will be temporarily closed until further notice. We are uncertain about the repercussions this will have, but feel that it’s ultimately the right direction. The restaurant industry and small businesses across the country desperately need government support, aid, and leadership. Please reach out to your senators, governors, and community members to let them know that we need them. In the meantime, please be well and take care of yourselves.

With hope, The Katie Button Restaurants Team
